Though this hotel is no archtectural masterpiece, it does everything a luxurious hotel should do: Provide welcoming comforts and personal service. Well situated in Kowloon for vacationing travelers (within a block of the Star Ferry and in the heart of all the shopping), the Langham takes good care of its guests.
We booked our rooms through a travel agent member of the Signature Travel Network. Not only were the prices attractive, they came with complimentary breakfasts -- probably a $35 value per person every day. Not only was the breakfast buffet outstanding, the Maitre D' of the restaurant remembered our names by the second day and took great personal care of us. We expect that on a luxury cruise ship but do not encounter that often in hotels.
Other five star hotels in this neighborhood cost substantially more.
Don't expect a grand entrance or expansive lobby. Rather look forward to good, personalized service, an excellent location and well-appointed comfortable rooms. The next time we come to Hong Kong, with all of its hotels, we'll be back.
